All About Apps
My instruction involves Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship. In Digital Literacy, we will be working on skills like keyboarding, understanding safe computer maintenance, improving hand and finger dexterity on touch-pads and all other vital parts of using digital devices for in-school testing and for use in the classroom.
For MYP Digitial Citizenship we will be following a curriculum based on Cyber Civics for Grades 5 - 8. We will be exploring what it means to be good digital citizens, best practices for privacy and web-browsing and how to stay safe online. Clicking on the link above will lead you to the full site for CSM which i encourage everyone to sign up for and explore. The role technology and the internet play in the lives of our students is vast and as a result can feel very overwhelming at times. CSM is a great support to help keep us all safe and healthy in all of our our online interactions.
The links on the left side provide PDF Digital Citizenship Family Worksheets and Family Activity Sheets for K-8 in both English and Spanish. Depending on how much your child uses technology - you may find all family tip sheets are relevant and useful to you, regardless of age or grade. Feel free to download and talk about them with your kids. This helps us to reinforce what they are learning in school.
The videos below are all recommended viewing K-8 where appropriate. There are discussion guide links below each of the videos if you want to carry on the conversation after watching.
Feel free to email me using the link to the left with any questions or concerns regarding school technology.
